Last night in the 4th quarter of the Sixers vs. Indiana Pacers game, Philly’s guard Tony Wroten sole of the Air Jordan 10 “Varsity Red” came completely torn off from the base of the shoe while attending an attack toward the basket.
This is the third time we have seen this with previous Nike models, which has us thinking is it time to start rocking more modern technology sneakers vs. older retro styles (in the case of Tony Wroten).
MJ still has such a big influence to what these athletes wear on the court, but wouldn’t it make sense to wear something at least not so dated. Let us know what you think in the comments. And is it time for NBA players to stop wearing older retro Air Jordans on the court?
